Judging from its name, there’s no conceivable way any of us could guess the aim of this game for iPhone. Catchy alliteration aside, the app challenges you to throw or ‘wang’ a collection of wellies and gumboots around the world as you progress to each level. You have to perfect your hand at throwing to get your wellies where you want them, collect points and build your score. You see – you’d never get all that from the title alone.
Welly Wanger World Tour – developed by Wanger constructs gameplay around a series of world landmarks, including Sydney’s Opera House, the Great Wall of China, the pyramids in Egypt and many other faraway locations. As you move from one destination to the next, the design of your gumboots change to represent the country’s theme, a cute added touch.
Flying through the air, catch and collect Welly Wonga coins to upgrade to new gumboots, each decked out with unique personalities – yes, you heard right –and skills.
View your ranking on the app’s leaderboard while you play and share high scores on Facebook and Twitter.
Boots are made for walking: Navigate your way through world-famous landmarks and catch point-scoring coins as you go.
This app takes silly to a new level, but that’s part of its charm that will likely appeal to all ages. Plus, it’s free – why not?
